Bottle from Stone in Asagaya. Pours a clear gold with a nice white soapy head that lingers for a bit. Awesome nose with lots of citrus: lemon, orange and grapefruit with some light pine and cracker. Very active carbonation with a crisp and dry, bitter finish. Awesome.

Poured into a shaker glass. Light to medium amber with a foamy cream colored head. Great aroma with some bread and caramel as well as a lot of citrusy hops. Flavor doesn’t have a lot of detectable malt character but has a nice dose of hops with equal parts earthy and citrusy notes. Medium bodied with nice carbonation and a crisp finish. Overall really nice for a pale ale and better than a lot of average IPA’s I’ve had.

Ibrew2or3 (7930) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - APR 1, 2012
On tap at Beer Republic during SF Beer Week, what a week! Pours copper with gold edges and near white head. The aroma has modest levels of spicy hops, a touch of citrus and then some floral at the aromatic periphery. The taste is nice and crisp and fresh with spicy hops and then it gets sort of floral with bittering floral hops and then a light amount of floral flavor hops. Yummers.

trevor211 (1533) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 13, 2013
On tap at The Sixgill. Golden pour, smallish head. Great balance on the nose, heavy citrus and just a bit hop forward. Hops shine even a bit more in the flavor -- malts patiently wait their turn, then slide through before a bitter after. Crisp, clean, and yet quite flavorful. Maybe a little skunky on the back end -- but this is really nice. Like it a lot.

On tap at Oblivion Taproom in Orlando. Pours a golden copper with an off white head and aroma of hops and grapefruit. Taste is hoppy, lots of grapefruit, citrus, and resin with a hoppy, bitter finish. Goes down easy and nice tasty bitter APA

boxofrane (2553) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 2, 2014
Bottle from Mari’s. Best by November 2014. Pours hazt orange with a medium sized white head, strong retention. Gorgeous looking beer. The aroma has huge tropical fruit, light citrus, some pine notes in the distance. The taste has a nice dry bitterness that fades quickly to a grainy, juicy grapefruit juice, light pineapple. Very nice.

skmikeg (1614) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 6, 2014
Pours a very nice golden orange with a two finger off white head that lingers for a while and fades to excellent lacing. Aroma is of earth citrus, pine resin, bready malts, light sweet malts, and light caramel. Taste is of citrus (grapefruit and orange), pine, bready biscuit malts, sweet malts, and some light caramel malts. Has a medium body with a semi creamy mouthfeel and a semi dry, semi bitter, medium finish. Overall, a pretty tasty, well balanced pale ale, and drinkable pale ale that is pretty sessionable.
